Hunting The Wounded
No ALT tag specified

Volvo Ocean Race

In the current situation, Amer Sports Too is slightly off the pace to overtake News Corp.

If the wind stays with News Corp, the odds are slightly against the girls to claim that extra point as the wounded News Corp might just make it to the save haven before being hunted down.

In front the situation has settled, all five yachts are back on starboard tack as the wind has backed to the south. This must give illbruck some comfort as they have a better cover on the fleet now. Djuice is sailing straight in their wake about 50 miles behind and Tyco and ASSA ABLOY slightly left of the track. Amer Sports One has the biggest separation, but illbruck is not far off their direct course to the finish in Rio.
